Back in the UK

For now at least anyway. Had a great flight back - free upgrade to business class. Huge seats, fully reclining, the flight was nowhere near full, so I got the whole row to myself. Champagne before take-off, mixed grill breakfast, given a free mini-travel kit with blindfold, earplugs, and personal hygiene kit.

Got back to the office to return my kit, only to be given another job out to Istanbul on Thursday. Then Friday, it's back to the normal work....weekend night shifts. We've got a Uni student doing his TSing - it's his last three shifts with us this weekend. He's done very well, and both Barry and I are very pleased with his progress.

I'm tired and falling asleep in front of the computer......my bed awaits.

Part Time Job

Whilst overtime is currently available again with the LAS, there is no knowing when it will be stopped again.

It is for this reason that I have got myself a part time job that works around when I am available, doing medical escort work for repatriations etc. Hence the reason I write this post sitting in the BA Executive Lounge at Dakar Airport in Senegal.

Senegal is a French speaking country, so I have had to put into practice my limited knowledge of French that I learned in school. I've got by so far.

They also have very odd computer keyboards. A is where Q should be, Q is where A should be, W is in the place of Z and vice-versa, and M is on the middle line on the far right, so I'm putting the delete key to good use!

I fly back to London in a few hours, landing at about 10am. If I get chance, I'll update this post using a familiar keyboard!
